YEW's Cog Nog exudes festive and patriotic spirit

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      For a born-and-bred Vancouverite, there are two appropriate eggnog options: a homemade variety, spiked with generous amounts of rum; and Avalon Dairy’s legendary organic concoction, also spiked with generous amounts of rum.

      If you’re a nightmare in the kitchen and Avalon’s has predictably sold out, head to YEW seafood + bar (791 West Georgia Street), where the Cog Nog will surely get you into the festive spirit.

      Think cognac, cream, Darjeeling tea syrup, and smoky, South American–inspired bitters joined in a patriotic moose-shaped mug that screams “I am Canadian!” and “Merry Christmas!”
